Default Robert Smith ESPN

That dude has Florida upsetting us tomorrow. Are you KIDDING ME?? Yeah because Connor Shaw's first home loss of his career is going to come at the hands of the worst Gators team in 30 years! Give me a break. I'm pretty sure Florida is playing their 3rd string QB. I think we cruise tomorrow night.

What's even worse is he had no reasoning behind his pick except "Florida will rise up around all the negativity surrounding the program." Gave no logical reasoning as to why their football team will beat our football team.

Okay DON'T jump me...because while I am VERY confident that we will win tomorrow night - it is NOT without some realm of possibility that Florida could beat us.

Let's play devil's advocate for a second.

We were outgained, out first downed and every major stat against Mississippi State and we won BECAUSE we got a bunch of turnovers.

That is part of the game...and we created those turnovers, but without those WHO KNOWS how that game may have turned out?

SECOND, there IS the ingredient that Brad Lawing is coming in with a REALLY REALLY good defensive line and he knows our system like the back of his hand. There's no GREAT advantage there...because with scouting film, we know their's as well...but their IS some ingredient of advantage there.

THIRD, Florida DOES HAVE MAJOR NFL talent on their team as well as high (starred) recruits in recent years. Yes they are beat up as hell, but they are not coming to Columbia without talent and lots of it.

FOURTH, Florida is still in contention for a bowl game and they are not forfeiting to us from what I understand. They are not coming into town expecting to lose. They ARE expecting to win.

IF we don't play very well, YES we could lose this game. THAT IS a reality.

Although I think we win...we have NOT beat up on anyone other than Arkansas this season and everybody has played us pretty close. I've learned my lesson with this bunch and I am certainly predicting a win bu our Gamecocks...but I would not be surprised with the ingredients above AND the fact that we have not dominated anybody...if we were to lose.

Hope to hell it won't happen...but...

Also hasn't SOMEONE called for an upset alert against in every game so far this season!?!?!

Florida has a ton of talent and nothing to lose. Which is dangerous.

well I think Marshmellows, dandelions and sprinkles will fall from the sky!
That is why Florida will win!!!

JK

I have no problem with people picking UF to upset us...if we play like we did last year in the swamp, give their offense the ball inside our 10, then yeah, they have a shot to upset us.

BUT...UF has a turnover margin of -0.2, and -0.6 on the road . USC is at +0.2 (58th in the country) but is +1.0 at home.

UF still has a good defense that can keep them in games, and they still have athletes at the skill position. But the numbers don't lie...UF is piss poor on offense and their D is the only thing that keeps them in games (see the UGA game).

The only other thing in UF's favor is Brad Lawing...he knows our blocking schemes, but knowing them and actually beating them are two different things (I imagine we may change up our signals a little as well).

So Robert Smith can suck it. HE is just like Mark May...a GREAT former player, but when it comes to analysis and looking at facts, his ability is like Florida's offense.

A loss here means they aren't going bowling.
They will come out very aggressive, which is why I hope Spurrier puts his foot on the gas and lets the offense fly..jump on UF quick, get rid of any energy on their sideline, then demoralize them with Davis and Wilds.

I agree with you. I know in college football the mental aspect of the game can't be overlooked, but I think it is kind of ridiculous for a professional sports analyst to make a prediction based solely on that side of the game. If he is predicting UF to win, he should provide the X's and O's of his reasoning. Does their D-line step up in the game? Do they win the turnover battle? What is it? To me, he is saying, "UF won't ever have a losing season, so they will win this game regardless of whom they play".
